Beginner Sailing RYA Stage 1 & 2

Our RYA courses for youth are available to club members age 8-16.

This beginners’ course provides RYA Stage 1 & 2 dinghy sailing training and is aimed at newcomers to sailing with little or no prior experience. The course will be run by one of the club’s RYA Senior Instructors, with a maximum of 6 participants. Participants are provided with copies of the RYA youth sailing scheme syllabus and logbook. There will be need of parent helpers.

This is a formal RYA course running alongside the Chew Crew groups which run on Sunday mornings.

The combined Stage 1&2 course can be completed in ideal conditions in 4 days, but is scheduled over 6 days to allow some flex for the weather. If the weather is bad there will be onshore-based activities and theory sessions.
